Parkinson’s Disease & Movement Disorders
Parkinson's Day Evaluation Program
The Parkinson's Day Evaluation Program is a specialized outpatient service of the Center designed to take the traditional clinic visit a step further by extending the observation and assessment phase of treatment. Established in 1989, this program has been replicated in other movement disorder centers throughout the US.
This highly personalized program is designed to foster closer physician and nurse assessment of the patient's functional status and response to medications and is based on our belief that learning more about your condition will facilitate a healthy adjustment and assure more effective management of the disease.
There are two types of patient programs available:
- Extended Observation and Assessment
- Newly Diagnosed Patient and Family
In addition to physician and nurse observation, the Program activities focus on the many aspects of coping with Parkinson's disease and may include teaching, discussions, exercise demonstrations, counseling and emotional support services.
